Essential Info

Some studies have shown that feeding your pet smaller meals over the course of the day can prevent pet obesity and lead to better health. Unfortunately, most working people can't get home to feed their pet at lunch and many will forget to put out breakfast in a rush to get out the door in the morning. You can change that by ensuring your pet is receiving regular amounts of food on a steady feeding schedule with the LeBistro Portion Control Automatic Pet Feeder. It is a programmable, automatic pet feeder that holds up to five pounds of dry pet food and dispenses portions from 1/4 cup to two cups at a time depending on the size of your pet. Additionally, you can schedule pet feedings up to three different times per day to maximize nourishment throughout the day. The LeBistro Portion Control Automatic Pet Feeder is powered by three D batteries, sold separately.

    Does not have capability to plug into wall outlet. Picture shown is wrong (the feeder that came was black).
    GREG -- conifer, CO   2/20/2014
    I have owned a Le Bistro previously and it worked flawlessly for around 4 years. This time, I can't say the same. The new one had a mind of it's own, and dispensed food at non programmed times. It did not dispense based on the programmed timer (2x a day). And it "leaked" food out during the day--In other words- it doesn't work.
    JOSEPH K. -- kennewick, WA   12/20/2013
    The pet feeder doesn't work properly. After the initial output, (which is small) the only way to get more out is to tap the top of the appliance, and that defeats the purpose.
    CHRISTY -- acworth, GA   12/5/2013
    I like the system except it keeps dumping more food after the dinner portion is dispensed. Overall it's a good purchase because it means I don't have to keep feeding the cat every time I walk into the kitchen.
    JULE E -- monroe, CT   12/2/2013
    works great, but does not work for my needs as the cat is a feral stray only problem the cat is afraid of it would be great for an indoor family pet, would work perfect
    ALLEN -- frazier park, CA   7/31/2013
    works great
    ANDREA -- blaine, MN   7/18/2013
    the product is not sound even though the concept is a good one. i will not buy this product again.
    FRANK -- lafayette, LA   7/17/2013
    Set up is easy and straightforward if you follow the written directions that come with the feeder; it really didn't take our cat much time at all to get used to it, although it is quite big.
    bill -- indiana   10/21/2012
    Light duty--have bought 2 ---only last about 6 months
    Lonestar10 -- fort worth, TX   7/27/2012
    Works great. My only wish is a button recessed so the dog can't push it that could dispense a small amount of food as needed in-between scheduled feedings. The low battery indicator does not give much of a warning, so you want want a AC power adapter, sold separately but very difficult to find.
    DON -- edmonds, WA   6/10/2012
    Works well as indicated, took a while for cat to get used to it, but he seems to do well with it.
    JENNIFER -- dolores, CO   2/14/2012
    This is a fantastic product... easy to set, reliable, CLEAN, great even distribution... A total asset. This is also a great company to order it from... they keep you informed from order to delivery and their information is easy to read and understand.. Very happy kitties, happy client
    FERNANDO -- franca, XX   1/19/2012
    Excellent product, I recommend.
    Scott W -- denver, CO   8/12/2011
    We have been using this for about 6 months now and we love it! It was very easy to setup and program.
    BRYAN -- chandler, AZ   4/27/2011
    works great but needs to be on a hard surface, carpet will push the bowl upward to bind up with the internal feeder door.
    KATE -- neepawa, MB   4/21/2011
    easy to use, instructions were simple to follow. the only thing i dont like about this is that the cat food i use is small pieces and there is some that is left in the dispenser part and falls out. the cat has learned to put his paw up there and get those last kernels. otherwise, this product is awesome. When I first used it, I had to watch the first feeding time to make sure the food came out to see how accurate it was, and it is. I like how it dispenses till the battery dies unlike others that dispense for only a few days then has to be reset. The food portions are accurate as well, my cat is on a diet so this is perfect for not overfeeding. Very impressed! easy to clean and refill.
    DANNY -- okotoks, AB   3/31/2011
    Extremely fast shipping and the pet feeder works exactly as described. Very happy customer !
    RUSSEL -- seattle, WA   2/25/2011
    VERY HIGH QUALITY. RELIABLE AND FAIRLY EASY TO PROGRAM AFTER THE FIRST COUPLE ATTEMPTS. HOLDS ALOT OF DRY FOOD SO REASSURING KNOWING THERE IS AMPLE SUPPLY AND LOW MAINTENANCE.
    Craig P -- denver, CO   2/7/2011
    This product works great for our two cats. It is a wonderful everyday product and it is also great for weekend get aways. The batteries have lasted 6 months and still going!
    CORY -- wasilla, AK   1/28/2011
    The feeder is easy to assemble and program, and it distributes the food at the proper time and quantity (up to 3 times a day, 1/4 cup to 2 cups). The clear plastic food bin is thin and a little on the cheap side, but the rest of the unit seems well made and I haven't experienced any problems. One thing of note: within 24 hours my cat figured out how to stick a paw up the chute and release a few kibbles of the next-scheduled portion. He apparently does that throughout the day until the entire portion has been distributed, then at the scheduled feeding little if nothing comes out. However the chute is reset with another portion, which my cat then spends the next several hours fishing out, a couple kibbles at a time. Keeps him occupied, perhaps stimulates the brain, and requires him to wait and work for his food, much like in the wild. Probably not a bad side effect.
